're an ambassador to the united nations -- i want to get your thoughts on this. she said, look, you go well beyond unclassified talking points in your daily preparation responsibilities. i guess the implication being that she would have been aware of other things that were different or contradicted directly to what she went and said on television. does this cast any doubt on her story? general clark has made what i've heard from everybody who knows her that she is an incredibly honest and forthright person. >> well, i think there's a bigger question here, erin, and that's the credibility of the administration on these national security issues and whether they politicized a national security issue that led to the death of four americans. i mean, i do -- i don't agree that the american people were not misled on this. i don't know how five days afterwards, a senior official -- first of all, i don't understand why susan rice was in that chair as opposed to hillary clinton as u.n. ambassador, she had nothing to do with what happened in benghazi. but besides that, you know, the issue here is why did the
days. >> united nations has its largest peacekeeping force actually in the congo. also in africa, politicians in both uganda and nigeria, they are targeting the country's gay population with now new legislation. critics say these new laws would single out gay africans for persecution and violent attacks. cnn's david mckenzie has the story. >> reporter: it's become a rallying cry for the gay community in africa. the brutal slaying last year of uganda activist david cato. bludgeoned to death at his home. the state blamed a robbery. his friends said it was this. his front page photograph in a tabloid calling for days to be hanged. i met cato just months before his death. he was afraid. >> is there space in uganda to be a man and openly gay? >> public space, we don't have that. by the way, the problem here is identity. i can do with you and my friend the whole year. you can drink and eat together if you don't know i'm gay. the moment i identify that i'm gay, that's where the problem comes. >> now it could get even worse. despite international condemnation, both uganda and nigeria's p
between the united states and russia is nice but does not confront the nations of the rogue nation that you're talking about and how do we deal with them. a no-use first strategy sends the message we won't first, but you better be prepared for retaliation. would you use them against iran for instance. >> yes, i am convinced it would influence iran because it would force the people and it's government to think through what they're doing. right now every move they make is celebrated through a good part of the world because its striking a blow on israel and the united states and others. i can't guarantee that they won't use nuclear weapons but i can gather tee that they guarantee that they'll have to think through the consequences of it. >> eliot: you want to say no matter who you may be, you will suffer the consequences that we said to russia in the 50s and 60s under that regime. how do you counter proliferation and stop the inevitable acquisition of nuclear weapons by nations where there is not the stability that we would oh to exist in a nuclear power. >> most countries still do no
